Nelson Chamisa, the leader of the opposition MDC has said that the socio-economic crisis in the country is fast deteriorating and can explode any time if no appropriate action is taken.
His remarks come when the country is submerged in socio-economic and political crises which manifest through the soaring inflation, deficits in power, water, food and the deteriorating democratic space. He said:
Zimbabwe is suffering; it is in serious crisis that runs the risk of imploding soon. We have a hungry population, a nation that is in pain. No citizen is without a charge sheet against government: pensioners, vendors, women, youths, the unemployed, nurses, doctors, teachers and workers in the private sector among them, and this is a fact.
As I speak, there is hunger in the townships, villages, farms, police posts and police camps, there is hunger everywhere. Hunger knows no wall. It does not pay respect to political party affiliation or tribal belonging of clan. It is a common threat to survival.
Meanwhile, analysts have suggested a dialogue between Chamisa and President Emmerson Mnangagwa and dollarisation of the economy to crush the inflation and assure growth.
